Acronyms for Success

I had one of those off weeks, were some things didn’t go my way and the things that did seemed to go my way because I forced it.  No worries, do some handstands, play the ukulele, write some poetry, make a lot of useless acronyms…uh.

I am a USPCV, in the CRM sector, and AAE (acronyms are everywhere). I have created some acronyms of my own, some are 100% accurate and some are…kinda sorta on point.  This post is mostly for other PCVs, as they will know that some of these arrangements of letters HARP (have a real purpose).

    Also, I’ve been making a journal of Peace Corps experiences I can fit on my knuckles. You know, to diversify my grad school applications.
